Reunited After 50 Years!
The Beta Xi sisters of '61 reminisce about sorority experiences
By Ellen Auslander Reitkopp, '61


Fifty years is a long time for such close friends from college not to see one another. But when seven sisters from the 1961 pledge class of Phi Sigma Sigma's Beta Xi Chapter returned to Cornell University last summer, it was truly as if we had never been apart.


We met at Goldwin Smith Hall on June 11 - appropriate since some of us recall attending classes in the lovely old building on the west campus Quadrangle. Read more>


Chapter Eternal

Phi Sigma Sigma offers its condolences


As we prepare for another amazing year, which will lead us into the Centennial, we must first take a look back on 2011. As an organization, we embraced 2011 and welcomed it with open arms. Overall, Phi Sigma Sigma experienced much success. However, just as with everything in life, we also experienced loss. Our sisterhood was truly tested twice this year as we mourned and remembered the lives of two sisters.
